Tip

Tips - for mushers who will participate in Polardistans for the first time


The week during Polardistans is a big social fellowship. The objective for the Polardistans organization is that as many as possible will carry out the race, both mushers and dogs, on a meritorious way and to gain a positive experience. We therefore below give some tips for first-time-mushers.

  • It is important that you in advance decide on your level of ambition, to carry out the race or to compete for a place on the podium? If you are driving a long distance race for the first time, a good goal is to carry out the race on a well and reasonable way after your own conditions, since a long distance race is so different from a "normal" stage race - remember that everyone finishing Polardistans is a winner.
  • It is important that you start exercising your dogs in good time and it is equally important that you are in good shape yourself. If you and your dogs have prepared yourself well, the conditions for success are good, and both you and your dogs are well-earned by that.
  • There is nothing wrong with spending the night or taking a longer break between two checkpoints. It is a decision for you to make based on yourself and your dogs ability. Just remember not to camp out right on the trail!
  • Before the race, make a driving plan which contains driving time and rest time between and at the checkpoint. Also make a schedule for how often you will like to snack the dogs including what and how much you will give your dogs to eat and drink at rest. As careful as you are with your dogs’ food you should be with your own eating and drinking. However, remember that a lot is happening over a long distance race that makes your schedule does not hold and that you and your dogs well beeing always have to be put before the schedule!
  • In good time before the race you should concentrate on your equipment. Check all the equipment that you are planning on using. Make sure that you test everything that you repair so that you know that it works. Also learn to handle all equipment that you buy new or borrow so that you know how to use it properly.
  • It is very important that you know how your equipment works, how long it takes for you to stake out your dogs, put up your tent and lit your kitchen before you can come to rest yourself. If you have not previously used your equipment in winter conditions - test your equipment and yourself in the "field" before the race to ensure you get a feel for how it all works out in the snow and cold. Do not be afraid to ask experienced mushers for advice.
  • An important part of long distance races is the ability to deal with different situations, often during pressured situations. What easily lowers your moral is fatigue and bad weather. One way to handle a pressured situation is to mentally work with positive visual pictures. In a positive visual picture you see yourself coping different situations, e.g. putting up your tent or lighting your kitchen when tired. These types of visual pictures are built on the experience that you gain from practicing different situations during the most varying conditions.
  • By eating and drinking, preferably any hot drink, regularly give yourself the best chance to cope with the unexpected. A hungre and/or dehydrated person can easily get into serious situations because our abilitty to think clear/constructively then quickly detoriates. If you start to doubt yourself - take a break, drink a hot drink and eat some, then usually the thoughts clear.
  • Another important part of not getting into trouble is to always follow the map so you know where you are. You should be able to tell where you are within a few hundred meters. Best way to do this is to follow the trail on the map as long as the visibility is good, because if the weather changes and the visibilty is lost, and it can go very fast, it is too late to orientate yourself - then you shall know where you are.
  • During your preparations and during the race, make the most of the experiences and knowledge that you receive. Use this knowledge for your next long distance race.
